Participatory visual methods for understanding children's lives in marginalized neighborhoods

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingOther chapter contribution

Abstract

This case study explores the contribution of participatory visual methods for understanding children’s everyday lives in marginalised neighbourhoods. In this it has two aims. Firstly, drawing on two visual research projects in which children used video, photography and drawing to record, analyse and communicate their experiences, it will explore the ways in which these methods can help make visible children’s lives from children’s perspectives. Secondly, the case study will engage with current debates about the nature of children’s participation in ‘child-led’ research. Here, the case study will explore the ways in which children can be practically supported to contribute to the generation, analysis and dissemination of research as well as considering the limits of their participation and the implications for our understanding of children and childhood.
